    Record-Keeping and Retention - Record-keeping requirements can be confusing given that there are numerous regulations that govern some aspect of employer record-keeping and retention. HR departments generate and receive a significant volume of records, and it is important for HR professionals to make a strong business case for implementing a comprehensive records management program.  This Ignite program will outline a blueprint for compliance in an effective records retention workplace policy.  – Cathy Plouzek
